Customer Review

on 6 October 2013
As is suggested by the sample pages accessible from the site, this is a lavishly illustrated tome as befits a publication from the BFI. Some of the essays are stronger than others, but the overall quality is high, and I like the way that the text and images have led me to discover films that are new to me (Japanese Gothic, anyone?). Overall there is more than enough to warrant a hearty 'thumbs up' from myself, and I would recommend the book to those with a general interest in cinema, and in Gothic in particular. I could see it coming in handy for English teaching/media studies teaching, and I am sure that many a casual reader would be drawn in by the bite-size chunks of the essays, which are perfectly sized for nighttime reading before turning off the lights. The enthusiasm is infectious, and the compendium succeeds in placing the gothic in its fuller cultural context.
Recommended reading for your inner ghoul!
